The Coast Guard in Maryland says it rescued a family of six as their boat began flooding.
A Coast Guard news release Wednesday says the 22-foot vessel began taking on water near Fort Armistead in the Hawkins Point section of Baltimore on Tuesday night. Authorities received a report from the boat’s previous owner who said the new owners contacted them to explain the problem.
Officer Brandon Jackson said it was a "phenomenal relief" to see the parents and their four children all wearing life jackets when they were rescued.
